Subject: Lyr Req: Lost United Irish 1798 Song
From: Pat deVerse

A few of us are searching for the words of a song sung at St. Michans Church last Sat. morning at commemoration of Oliver Bond.

We are also very curious about its origins,

Here are some of the words;

'Beat the drums for Mitchel boys, beat the drums for for Tone,
beat them for Lord Edward who died in jail alone,
muffle them for Emmet, that proud and gallant boy,
and bash them like a thunderclap for Hope and Henry Joy.
...........any ideas?

Thanks Martin,

We think it's early 20th century, possibly in a Waltons songbook. ONe man recalled hearing it on Waltons prog. in late 1950s on Raidío Éireann.

FWIW: I have one of the larger Walton's songbooks from around the late fifties or so and there's no sign of it there.

Regards

Hi Pat
Have checked our two Wlaton songbooks - not in either, nor can I ind it in any of the Healey books or in Zimmermann's, Songs of Rebellion.
Too early for Terry Moylan's tome.
Will try Patrick Galvin later.
